Work to replace the Route 76 bridge over Bryant Creek in Douglas County is expected to begin Monday, June 11, weather permitting. The bridge is located nine miles east of Ava.
As construction is under way, the roadway will remain closed from County Road 76-216 to County Road 76-126. Completion is anticipated in early August.
